    I live in an apartment and still manage to do 20L brews courtesy to the Braumeister.Hi. Just
    wondering if you are using that hoprocket for hopping or filtering? I have the same setup ie.

  • Posted in thread: Is 68% attenuation anything to worry about? on 08-14-2014 at 11:37 PM
    Wyeast 1272 generally attenuates 72-78%, so it's a little lower than the average. If you mashed
    at 67, it should have given you about 72-75%-ish, but using 20% crystal malt means a lot of
    unfermentabl...

    I'm brewing the epic pale ale clone. The OG was .051 and today after 12 days in the fermenter
    its .016. Its in a temp controlled fridge with heat pad. I usually get %80+6 kg Gladfields Pale

    Usually about 72 hours.In my case, I drop the temp on my Johnson Controller to 36*F. I then
    wash my keg and fill it about halfway with water and StarSan and put it in my keezer. 24 hours
    later I flip ...

    ...I like to cold crash my ales to get as much yeast out of suspension as possible before I keg
    (just ensures I have fewer yeast sample pours).How long do you typically cold crash for before
    kegging? ...

    Congrats! My first couple of all grain batches I was in the mid to upper 60's. Now I average
    between 82% and 85%. Even though I did hit 87% on today's brew! :ban:Hey, cheers very much for
    sharing your...

    Yes. You want to denature the enzymes, as it takes like an hour to sparge and you want to
    preserve your malt profile from the mash.I now understand and will do a mash out next brew.
    Takes a while but ...

    72% - an improvement of 20%. Happy with that.. finally some progress!It might not be down to
    the crush alo...

    Again, I pre-wet my grains and allow them to sit for about an hour before I mill them. My mill
    gap is set at 0.039".Here is the first pass through my Barley Crusher and then the second
    pass.Does look ...
